VERY belated announcement
I wanted to introduce - very belatedly (sorry, with a 2yr old and a now 4 month old my free time is pretty non existent) - Ursula Camille H F, who was born exactly on her due date - June 15th. I've often thought about posting on here to let you all know about her arrival, but usually I was juggling three things and had an infant attached to me when the thought entered my mind.
After all of my angst, we're very happy with her name. We don't even use a nickname for her, but all refer to her (even her brother Xavier does this) as "Baby Ursula". Response to her name has been almost universally positive - people commenting about how elegant and beautiful it is.
Xavier's name is causing the only difficulties, actually. I'm surprised by how difficult it is to get people to pronounce it Zay-vee-er, which was the only pronunciation that seemed logical to me. Even after I say it, other people add the Ex sound. Oh well. Most of the time I don't even correct people anymore. I'm not sure if I would've chosen another name if I had known pronunciation was going to be such a problem. We had such a short boy's list, and it really suits him.
Thanks again for all the thoughtful comments. It took us so long to get these two little rascals that my name-choosing time was rather protracted. While I'm glad to finally have my little family, I've often missed this community.
